Great initiative guys! Given the current situation we are living in Venezuela and the potential our country have for adopting DASH as a way to achieve a better economic situation, I believe this to be a no brainer proposal. Cheers!
Hello Santos, Im glad that as a Venezuelan you can validate the problem we are trying to solve. Thanks for your support!

Hello everyone. This Saturday (Jan, 20th) we were at the 4th Dash Caracas Conference, as you know we are allies (Dash Caracas and Dash Help).

We were providing support, responding questions and solving technical problems. It was a great experience, we helped approximately 200 people. The major problem we dealt with was the diversity of smartphone firmware versions, forcing people to download different wallets like Freewallet, Coinomi, Jaxx, etc. And creating confusion when people tried to buy goods and services using different wallets.

That didn´t stop us, and the day was a success!

(Check out some pics below)






After conference (Monday, Jan 22th) we had a meeting with Alexis Lugo (Coordinator of Technical Support of Dash Caracas). There we gave him our 1st feedback and official recommendation/statistics report. The brainstorming we had, the ideas that came up and mutual feedback was just amazing. We are sure we will achieve the mass adoption of Dash in Venezuela very soon.

We will submit our proposal on Feb 1st. We hope for your support!

Thanks for your time.

Excellent initiative! We need more projects like this in Venezuela because the use of Dash has grown so much and we need supports in many things.

PROPOSAL UPDATES:

Following the feedback and advice we have received from the MNO´s and the community, these are the updates we have made to improve our proposal. (Special thanks to DeepBlue)
1- (Feb, 2nd. 2018)- We changed the format of the table on the Social Media section in order to make it easier to read.
2- (Feb, 6th. 2018)- We added a table with our "Detailed Costs Breakdown" (go to Budget section), there it can be noticed that our operational costs are actually very low.
3- (Feb, 7th. 2018)- We added some screenshots on the Allies section which show evidence of the support (and proof of alliance) from many people in the Dash community.
4- (Feb, 7th. 2018)- We put the link of the results from the survey we made and which validates the problem we are solving. (Link is right under the Proposal video link).
5- (Working on it)- We are setting up a remit assistance guidance called "Send Money Home", which will help Venezuelans living overseas easily sends remittance to their family through Dash. Remittances in Latam is a $70 billion market.

Clarification: We want to make sure that the MNOs and the community in general know that if the price of DASH keeps going back up, we will be able to operate for more months than we initially planned without submitting another proposal.

AlejandroE, I hope your proposal passes. However, if it doesn't, consider setting up escrow and defining milestones, even though InstantKarmaFund has vouched for you. It sets a good example, and it will help.

DASH HELP VENEZUELA AT THE 5TH DASH CARACAS CONFERENCE

Hello Dash Community, last saturday (feb 24th, 2018) we were (once again) giving support and help to all the attendees of the 5th Dash Caracas Conference (special guest: Samuel Barbosa - Core Android developer of the Core Team).

Once again we helped 237 people. We are attaching a chart which shows the classification of the problems that people had, we solved 236 cases, the only 1 remaining was a person who had problem with the internet connection, and after a exhaustive tests we concluded that it has a problem with his phone (he had an old phone from the chinese manufacturer ZTE). Also, we took the opportunity to teach people how to monitor the network in their walletS, how to recover it using the recovery phrase, change the currency (exchanges rate), etc. The attendees were very thanksful for our service and soon we will post a video with testimonials.

Besides, our tech director Lorenzo Camejo (LorenzoRey), was at the conference as part of the experts panel who responded all kind of questions from the attendees and twitter, he had a great participation! (check picture below). Also, you can see his participation here

Also, we have some recommendations for the Android Wallet in order to make it more user friendly and intuitive. Since Samuel Barbosa was at the event, we talked to him about this issue and he told us to send him all the corrections we have by email, and also write them in Github.

We are happy to help end users and also to the Core Team to improve the Dash products, we love to help! :);)














With Samuel Barbosa (Android Developer - Dash Core Team)

Hello JZA, thanks for the suggestion, we will see what we can do. At the first time we tried black but the Dash Help logo got lost in the background and that is why we put it white.

But we will see what we can do, maybe we can put a border in the app. Thanks a lot!
